Mini Cheddar Scones - Low Carb, Grain & Gluten Free

Today I did another guest post for Honeyville. I shared my recipe for Mini Cheddar Scones. These aren't you typical scones...they are SUPER cheesy. I was looking to create something to enjoy with soup, chili, etc. that was more than a cracker but not quite a biscuit. These scones are thicker than a cracker and thinner than a biscuit and shaped like a cookie...a/k/a they can be made and shaped with your bare little hands (no special pans required). If you can roll a ball of dough with your hands and press it until somewhat flattened...you've got it made!

Both of my sons, hubby and I really enjoyed these cheesy little scones alongside the "Chili Beef Stew Soup" I made this weekend. I baked them until crisp but you can also reduce the baking time by a minute or two to produce something a little more chewy. I added a bit of chipotle pepper to give them a little kick (similar to cheese straws if you've ever had them before). But, if you are making them for children to enjoy or you simply aren't crazy about a little spice...just omit the chipotle pepper. They'll be delicious either way. I've been enjoying them throughout the week with soup for lunch. If you'd like to check out the recipe, this link will take you to it here: Mini Cheddar Scones. Enjoy!

Hi GGC! These Mini Cheddar Scones look so good and the recipe sounds so easy :) With only 2 people in my household I wondered if you think these would freeze well. If not, then what storage method would you suggest... room temperature on fridge?

Hi Kathy,

I think you could keep them at room temp for at least 5 days (unless you live in a humid climate). While I haven't frozen any yet, they should freeze well. If you want to re-crisp them, just pop them into a hot oven for a few minutes to "rejuvenate" them. :-)

Thank you so much for the quick reply! I was thinking these might even taste good with my scrambled eggs for breakfast. :) Wishing you and your family a blessed Thanksgiving! <3

Hi GGC,

We had these scones tonight ... they were delicious! And guess what we had with them ... our first-of-the-season grilled Costco lamb chops. Now, that's a *sure* sign of Spring. It's almost here, right around the corner ... knocking at the door! :-)

Hi CyberSis,

Glad you enjoyed the scones. Oh my...lucky YOU enjoying grilled Costco lamb chops! Honestly, they are some of the best I've had and the most beautiful. I always look at them no matter where I shop and I really haven't seen any that compare to Costco lamb chops. I need to get some to grill SOON!

Sounds like Spring is definitely knocking on your door! ;-)
